Did the 2.4 mile hike down hill from SR. 108 park at closed scales and walk down. Gravel all the way with daughter on bike. Walk back up is a climb but flat wide rodeway.

Easy trail, great for running, hiking, biking. Lake is owned by PG&E so no swimming. Swimming with caution in river above lake is permitted. In winter, lake freezes over toward inlet. Do NOT try to cross the ice. Fishing for planter Trout is great and watching the Eagles fly is spectacular. Overall a great trail. Access from South Fork Rd., HWY108, or Confidence/ Middle Fork Rd's...

Truly the gateway to adventure! Whether from the east or from the west, this scenic mountain pass offers everything. If you're able, Sonora Pass by snowmobile is the way to go. Pack stations offer endless miles of horse trails. Also through Chipmunk Valley rock climbing and unbelievable vista hikes. Fishing and hunting opportunities are around every corner.
